[Lowe's] Hitachi RB24EAP 23.9cc Gas Powered Handheld Blower $139.99

lowest in the past 2 years (amazon was selling for $150ish during past sales)

Great price for a 2 cycle leaf blower and it comes with 7 years warranty (for consumers, not commercial users), it works AWESOME on snow too, i own this blower and it blows ALL the snow on the windshield without hiccups or issues.

(friendly advise: u will get a ticket without removing the snow on the windshield)

anyway, enjoy the backyard cleaning and drive safe everyone;)

I had one for a year, not bad, takes a few tries to start if it isn’t used often. I used it for blowing leaves, driveway, sidewalks, drying cars. Enough power for household use.

I bought this about 2 weeks ago. Hoping Lowe's has a price protection policy! Thanks for the heads up.

Is this a real Hitachi handheld blower or just another knockoff?

Got a corded electric B&W blower/mulcher/vac & am very happy with the results but hate the cord which makes it practically useless in winter for snow removal so this is very tempting. That said, does anyone familiar with this Hitachi (or any 2s blowers) be stored outside in the shed & be expected to start even in AB's harsh winters?

Also if stored indoors, does the gas vapors leak & stink up? Thanks

Picked one up. Solid blower. Powerful enough for me. Glad I didnt go for a battery one.

Also picked one up yesterday. Nothing much to assemble; cranked on the second pull. Have a matching Hitachi weed wacker thats 5 years old that works every spring on the first or second pull and I've never performed any maintenance on it

Had a corded blower. Pain in the arse.
Had a battery powered blower. Garbage.

Buyers may want to check if they can get this serviced when needed. Might be an issue in some areas.

picked up a unit at my local lowes about an hour ago & just finished doing the yard! this thing is small (or atleast much smaller than I thought), light & much more powerful than I expected. easy pull start with almost no recoil. likely no good for a foot of snow but I can certainly see this thang making life much easier clearing Calgary's dry white stuff on the walkways, sidewalks & ofcos the car.

only con is that its quite numbingly buzzy with a bit of torque twist. other than that, I pretty stoked.

Which battery blower might I ask? Looking into getting a battery one.

Corded blower are more reliable though. I like gas machine but couldn't imagine buying and maintaining a machine that only is used couple of times in the spring and fall.

Gas will evaporate, but the rate is slow you won't notice the smell.
